Fantastic performance improvement from just changing front pads and using SRF brake fluid. It will give you all the performance you need on the road and seem to work well on track. I found them to be a bit noisier than standard pads, but only when breaking hard, so no worse than normal when driving around town or on motorway. They are British made as well, which is a bonus!
Carbotech Brake Pads for Model 3 Performance
XP10™ - Temperature zone : 110°C to 800°C
When Carbotech unleashed XP10™ to the general public in the US it was an instant success, gathering multiple regional, divisional, and national championships. XP10™ is a very high initial bite material with a coefficient of friction, and rotor friendliness unmatched in the industry with fade resistance in excess of 900°C. Due to the high level of friction and bite, this material is recommended for cars weighing 900kg or more and can be used with road or track tyres.
XP10™ is also ideal for advanced/instructor level drivers. XP10™ still maintains the highly praised release and excellent modulation, rotor friendliness and non-corrosive dust that have made all Carbotech compounds so popular. XP10™ can also be used very effectively on EVs which have regenerative braking, as squeal isn't usually an issue. Unlike some track oriented pads on the market, XP10™ can be safely used to drive to and from track due the excellent control and modulation it gives even at road use temperatures.
The standard Tesla OE rear outboard pads have spring clips attached to them which locate in the caliper to stop the rattling as they wear. There are no clips on these rear pads so special double sided adhesive tape is provided which sticks the outboard pad to the caliper to prevent rattling.
You may find our EPB retractor cable useful when changing rear pads on the Model 3 Performance.
The correct bedding procedure is included with the pads. It is very important to follow this to ensure the pads perform as expected on track.
These pads may be noisy at low speeds if you drive in creep mode, but in our tests we found that selecting hold mode virtually eliminated slow speed squeal. The Carbotech range are not ECE R90 approved.
